Steel connection

Design Approaches

for Complex Structures

Our firm specializes in Steel Connection Design for various structural steel projects, and we take pride in providing a range of services that cater to our clients’ unique needs. Our expertise covers standard shear connections, non-standard shear connections, moments, bracing, trusses, cranes, high-seismic and specialty conditions.

With years of experience in the industry, we have worked closely with steel fabricators, and we understand the importance of designing connections that are both easy to build and erect. Our team works hard to produce accurate, efficient, and timely connection designs that keep your project on track. We make sure that your detailer has all the necessary sketches to move forward, and we ensure that the Issue for Approval (IFA) dates are met so that your steel gets into the shop on time.

Connection design

Standard and practices

Our Steel Connection Design services are based on various international standards, including American Standards (such as AISC), Russian Standards (such as SP), and Eurocode. Our team is well-versed in the requirements and regulations of these different standards and can provide design services that comply with the specific standards required for your project.

American standards

For American Standards, we follow the AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) standards, which are widely recognized as the benchmark for steel construction design in the United States. Our team is familiar with AISC standards for connection design and can provide reliable and efficient designs based on these guidelines.

Eurocode

For Eurocode, we follow the European standard for steel construction design, which is widely recognized in Europe and many other parts of the world. Our team is well-versed in the Eurocode requirements and can provide designs that are in compliance with these regulations.

Russian standards

For Russian Standards, we follow SP (Свод правил) standards, which are the main building codes in Russia. Our team has experience working with these standards and can ensure that our connection designs comply with the SP regulations for steel construction.

Regardless of the specific standards required for your project, our team is committed to providing accurate and efficient Steel Connection Design services that meet your project’s needs. We work closely with our clients to understand their requirements and ensure that our designs meet their expectations.

Structural Engineers who Specialize in Steel Connection Design

Design softwares

Our Steel Connection Design services are backed by state-of-the-art design software that allows us to provide accurate and efficient designs. We use a range of steel design software, including but not limited to:

Tekla structures

Tekla structures a building information modeling (BIM) software that enables us to create 3D models of steel structures and connections.

IDEA StatiCa

We use IDEA StatiCa software for our Steel Connection Design services. IDEA StatiCa is a powerful software tool that allows us to perform code-checking and optimization of steel connections. With IDEA StatiCa, we can model and analyze complex steel connections and generate accurate and detailed calculations and drawings.

SAP2000

We also use SAP2000 software for our Steel Connection Design services. SAP2000 is a comprehensive software tool that allows us to perform advanced analysis and design of steel structures, including connections.

With SAP2000, we can perform finite element analysis (FEA) of complex steel connections to simulate their behavior under different loads and conditions. This enables us to optimize the design of the connections for strength, stiffness, and economy, while ensuring compliance with the relevant standards and regulations.

Lira software

We use LIRA software for our Steel Connection Design services for Russian and Ukrainian standards. LIRA-SAPR is a comprehensive software tool that allows us to perform advanced analysis and design of steel structures, including connections.

With LIRA-SAPR, we can perform finite element analysis (FEA) of complex steel connections to simulate their behavior under different loads and conditions.
